Welcome to CG Cookie SIX Community
Community - a feeling of fellowship with others, as a result of sharing common attitudes, interests, and goals.
As a member of CG Cookie, you are part of this fellowship of artists working towards shared goals: learning, networking and achieving success in what you do.
I am pleased to welcome you to the brand new integrated CG Cookie community forum!
The CG Cookie community was originally made possibly by adopting Discourse as the forum software. Discourse enabled us to offer a great community experience out of the gate, with little development time. It just worked. The downside, CGC’s community technically resided on a separate server, domain and even required some login bridges. This created challenges while striving to create an unified UX between CGC EDU and the Community.
While we are bummed to leave discourse, the entire CGC crew is pumped for the future of the community here. While only version 1.0 of many exciting versions to come, I am excited about where we can grow, and where we as a community can push it.
A few gained benefits from being fully home grown and integrated
- Clicking on a members avatar or username will take you to the profile page. Improving the chances of gaining more eyes on your work.
- Ability to tag CGC members and get notified on-site.
- Bookmarking Community Topics which are accessible via your CGC site-wide bookmarks.
- All Exercise submissions have been given the status of archived. Though they can still be accessed via your profile, but are not visible on the original lesson. If your exercise was not fully graded, it is recommended you re-upload it to the new system to get some fresh feedback benefiting from the new site. :)
⭐️ Known Issues we are tackling in the coming days
- There are a few users which may not be able to login due to username changes in the past. If you're not able to login, ping support in the lower right corner and we will get you squared away!
- Custom Avatars are currently not working, we are updating our Cookie ID to accommodate for this in the coming days.
- Shop orders are currently not brought over.
Some courses don't have download files as of yet, these should be added before the weekend hits!
Where are all of the previous community topics?
For the foreseeable future we’ve frozen the previous iteration of the community. Meaning all the content and topics on the http://community.cgcookie.com will remain as read-only. The CGC crew is looking into processes to migrate topics and replies over, though may not be available for some time. It is also a bit exciting to start fresh, with a new platform. :)
Should I recreate my sketch or poly books?
It is not definite CGC will be successful at resurrecting previous Poly or Sketch books from the previous community forum. If you’re anxious to get the work there, go ahead and create a new book, or create a project using the newly improved gallery system here on CGC.
